So, did you guys get out like I told you to? Where are the pics? Come on, share! I got out for a quick walk around the neighborhood, and took a couple pictures of leaves and stuff, but I don’t think I got anything worth posting here, so don’t get your hopes up. It’s getting really pretty here in the lowlands now though, so that’s cool. (I haven’t been up there to verify it, but I think the color in the high country is pretty much done for the year. In fact, the mountains are getting pounded with snow right now – they’re expecting a full two feet!!)
Today’s picture was taken on one of those days when I forgot to bring my big camera with me, but fortunately I still had my pocket point and shoot. Despite the small size and tiny lens, you can still get decent pictures with those things in a pinch. I’m actually a bit sad to admit that I’ve gotten out of the habit of carrying my point and shoot with me everywhere. I always have my cell phone though, and while it’s true that the camera in that thing is better than any cell phone camera I’ve had before it, it’s still not capable of getting any pictures I’d really call decent. (I mean, pictures of my buddies, sure, but beyond that…)
This was taken at the far end of Baker Lake, which sits on the western slope of the Cascades, north of Highway 20 (the highway that goes through North Cascades National Park) and Highway 542 (the road to Mt. Baker). I got distracted, and forgot what else I was going to say. Since it’s already late, I’m going to go ahead and hit submit now.
Notes: Canon PowerShot SD850 IS (Point and shoot). 1/200s, f/2.8, ISO 80.
